Netflix To Produce Tour De France Docuseries

After finalising a partnership with the Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO), streaming platform, Netflix, will produce a new docuseries based around the 2022 Tour de France.

The series is expected to be released in early 2023 across eight episodes following the eight teams across the Tour de France, AG2R Citroën, Alpecin-Fenix, Bora-Hansgrohe, EF Education-EasyPost, Groupama-FDJ Cycling, Ineos Grenadiers, Jumbo-Visma, and Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl.

The coverage will largely be focused on the upcoming Tour de France on 1 July in Copenhagen, focusing on the daily lives of each team and their cyclists.

The partnership will also see the production company, Quadbox, along with French broadcaster, France Télévisions (FTV), assist in the production of the series.

Tour de France organisers, ASO general director, Yann le Moënner, said the series will hope to capitalise on the 150 million viewers base the event has across Europe.

“We are proud of this partnership with Netflix, France Télévisions and the Tour de France teams, which will offer fans a unique immersion behind the scenes,” le Moënner said.

“Through a narrative approach, which is additive to the competition itself, the public will be able to discover how the Tour de France represents the ultimate challenge for the competitors, in particular in terms of suffering, pushing their limits and team spirit.

“This project is part of our overall ambition to make our sport more accessible and meet an even wider audience,” he said.

FTV sports director, Laurent-Eric Le Lay, said: “As the historic partner and broadcaster of the Tour de France, we are delighted to participate in this project which will allow everyone to experience part of the daily life of champions and teams.”

“It is additive to what we do every year during the race and we believe that it will attract an even larger audience to this beautiful event,” he said.

FTV still plans to proceed with the broadcast of its own documentary prior to the 2023 Tour de France, in addition to the Netflix docuseries.
